The sword and lazer podcast has just recently turned into a vidcast! What does that mean to you guys? Well if you are a geek like me or enjoy your fantasy and science fiction books and would like a cool web show to help you pick out what to read and check out next then the already popular podcast series has just recently got its own youtube channel and website than you can check out HERE. Its essentially a book club that brings you reviews and news on everything that is of a sword and sorcery or sci-fi flavour.

The first episode is up and available to watch and features a great interview with Author Scott Stigler. Its a great interview as he talks about his new book “Nocturnal” and showcases a trailer for the book to give you a tease as to what to expect when you read it. I thought the trailer was a good idea too, I might think about doing a trailer for “The Book of Ascension”, could be a great way of exposing your project to a wider audience!

The art of writing

 

Hey peeps! found another gem of an article on the web that I thought I should share for any of my fellow newbie writers out there looking for some advice or special tips on writing better. If you are like me and have a passion for story telling yet dont actually have much experience in writing professionally, whilst at the same time have thrown yourself into the daunting task of actually writing a book despite the aforementioned facts then please read this nifty article  right here! ^__^

I enjoy reading such things and I’m learning a lot from doing so, after all what better way to up your game by learning from people who are already literary black belts? In the foreseeable future I plan on using sites such as those that allow writers to put excerpts of their stuff online for people to critique but for now ill stick to my current training methods and work on putting excerpts here on the blog first!

What are the methods you guys use? Obviously reading more books helps but unconventional or strange methods of inspiration and style development do you use to help improve your game? I would love to know so please do share and comment below.

Went out to do some more research today on the secret society/illuminati subject, as part of some knowledge building for my story! I have exhausted my eyeballs with all of the documentaries out there that cover these subjects, having watched crap loads of films by Alex Jones, Peter Joseph and David Icke. All that stuff was great for bolstering what I already knew and watching them has made me come up with some cool ideas for me to work into my book, but I felt that I should at least read a few books that are out there also, you know to diversify the content from which I research all my factoids from etcetera etcetera…

It was then that a friend of mine took me to this underground book store that houses tons of books on all matter of things, some old, some new, some that are banned! No seriously! and no its not pornographic >__<

I was told that I “cant share this place with anyone”, it was a secret and the only reason that I could come was because I was “writing a book that covers this type of shit!” (So eloquent ^__^) and that my friend had no real use for it anyway. He was joking of course but I think I will keep it a secret just so I can feel cool and in the in crowd for knowing a nifty little “Book Hive” that no one else knows about.

Secret book nest!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There were some great books that I definitely would have struggled to find elsewhere, and so now I must read and be inspired to whip up some more goodness that is “The Book of Ascension”!

^__^ Aiden out!
